It may be fashionable to do retro console style covers of modern songs or A Capellas on YouTube but Geek Native’s research shows that gamers associate more modern consoles with the best music.
86 gamers answered the poll in the blog’s Jeff Penny competition. It should be noted that the blog makes no claim the poll was scientifically rigorous. Results are shared only as a matter of interest.
There was a tie for first position for the console associated with the very best music. Microsoft’s previous generation device scored 16.28% of all the votes which was enough to match Sony’s PlayStation 4.
The highest scoring “retro console” was the Nintendo 64 which took 13.95% of the votes; enough to beat the Xbox One.
There was a tie for last place as well with Nintendo’s Wii only able to match the Atari with less than 5% of the votes. Consoles not listed in the survey failed to score any points although the Dreamcast and handheld consoles were not made available as options to vote for.
